Michal left her house to fill water. Michal was a good-looking woman, but one who had gone through a lot of problems in her life. A number of men had married her for her good looks and then separated. She had not been able to get along with them. She did not have any children. Now, she was living with another friend. She had got fed up of marriage, she was only living with him. Even David, the man she was living with, was not happy to settle down, they had decided just to live together and consider marriage later. In this way, she was continuing.

This low view of God entertained almost universally among Christians is the cause of a hundred lesser evils everywhere among us.

When we lack faith, we do not expect any good from the Lord.  We doubt His Love and Graciousness.  When things do not go according to our plan, we doubt Him. Instead of asking where I went wrong, I think that God is not good to me.  Faith means total trust & dependence on God in His Love, Graciousness and Power, that He can and will give me the very best.  Even if things appear to be wrong, I believe my Heavenly Father is in control and is doing it in His Wisdom as to what is good for me and His Wisdom is truly the very best for me.

In fact, if I come to full faith in Him, I will not be disturbed, angry, disappointed or in any hurry.  I do not mean that I do not ask Him for anything, I will definitely ask for whatever I like or need or want, but I am submitted to His Will and willing to give up anything if it is not His Will.  I am 100% assured that my Heavenly Father loves me and will give me the very best.  So shall we say Amen to that?
